Aggravated my ribs/side a bit with some of the core work last week so laid off it this week. Had some side stitches pretty bad at the end of the week but landed 65+ on just 6 days with another day off again... I have taken a day off per week but have done a fair amount of walking/hiking on that off day. More moving in the right direction.

Short tempo on Monday that felt a little harder than I would have liked but it wasn't too bad for a rust buster. Legs and back were surprisingly stiff on Tuesday. Good uptempo 10 miles on Friday. Heading in the right direction... Felt pretty good by week's end except the ribs are on and off sore still.

Halfway through the week, clicked over into December. The November recap looks to be pretty good as I hit 279 miles with 3 days off. So I was in the 300 ballpark if I hadn't bailed on those 3 days. That puts this as my 4th best month of the year believe it or not. Not too bad for a normally quiet time of year. A very short workout on Tuesday and another 60 min 10 miles on Friday, which is good. I want to try for one of those a week (or alternative) where I can fit it in. Finished the week off with a couple of longer runs. Ribs were actually pretty painful during some of the runs this week. Towards the end of the run on Sunday morning I struggled a bit with them over the last few miles.
